The truth is that renewing is necessary and the audiovisual colossus continued to maintain (almost always) its commitment to serial quality, pulling out of its sleeve with each new season, programs ready to fall in the taste of its monstrous audience spread around the world.

It is also clear that not all series planned to be the new phenomenon from square reach their audience in a certain way, and many die on the beach ending up being canceled – this was the case with the recent Jupiter’s Legacycreated to be Netflix’s answer to the boysgives amazon, canceled this year after a single season. Obviously, Netflix wanted to have a new milestone to call their own (within the superhero genre), but at the end of the day, it’s the audience who dictates what’s successful and what isn’t. And just like the box office of a movie at the cinema, if the viewing numbers on the platform for a certain series are not satisfactory, justifying its expenses, it will eventually be cancelled.
